MCM Comic Con is back this year, and will be the first year since 2019 the event can be held without Coronavirus restrictions.
This year is also a landmark year for the convention, as it will celebrate 20 years since being first held in the capital.
The attendance pre-Covid saw crowds over 130,000 attend the event, with many hoping we see those levels again.
